I realize more and more each day. Many people suffer from a number of issues, but do not make time for true self care.  We are all dealing with many circumstances (past and present) that often leave us feeling hopeless, fearful and a range of emotions that are uncomfortable.  Many seek positive ways to cope; counseling, meditation, praying, yoga, exercise, writing, etc.  Others may deal with the feelings in more destructive wa...

This post is meant to make you feel some sort of way. While I have a lot I can say on the subject... my words would pail in comparison to the words of James Baldwin... in regards to your progress?

These videos fill me with emotions... especially when you see that we are still waiting on your progress. Take the journey and watch each of these videos of James Baldwin.  These are not necessarily in chronological order... but to me...

This may very well cause controversy, but I am okay with that.  There is a greater good at stake and hopefully it will leave you with a greater understanding of a topic that we do not discuss enough.  This is only meant to be a healthy discussion about a little word that has made a huge difference in people's lives throughout the history of mankind. A word that even shapes the very history we study in school.  A word that is c...

Writing is the main thing that has gotten me through some tough times over the years.  Sitting at my feet is a container full of things that I have written, dating as far back as high school... over twenty one years ago. There may even be some middle school journals in the mix.  

As I flip through page after page of poems, stories, quotes, songs, notes to self and unsent letters to others, I realize how I managed to overcome ma...

The past few months have been full of personal highs and some lows as well... but I am doing my best to remain in a positive frame of my mind despite any low moments. Some days it is easier than others to rise AND shine... other days the struggle is real. Through it all, I'm living... my best life on purpose.  2018 is flying by and as I take a moment to look back over the past 8 plus months, I am reminded of how strong I reall...

 Over the past few months I have been experiencing the most amazing personal triumphs.  I finally spread my wings and took a leap of faith in many aspects of my life. I am letting go of a lot things that were weighing me down and keeping me from soaring.  I am getting rid of things that are restricting me from spreading my wings. As I spread my wings more and more each day, I am able to reach new heights....

As I continue to examine self, I realize more and more about the man behind the mask.  On my quest for self actualization (the realization or fulfillment of one's talents and potentialities, especially considered as a drive or need present in everyone)... I realize that I must remove the mask I have been wearing to reach my fullest potential.  Do not think that for a moment that I have been living a lie, because that is simply...

Dictonary.com states that self is "a person's essential being that distinguishes them from others, especially considered as the object of introspection or reflexive action."  

Lately I have had to take a closer look at myself and evaluate what makes me uniquely different from others in many aspects of life. I have evaluated my worth in terms of my professional life and my personal life as well.  Based on my own (self)asses...

Step out of the darkness and into the light, and then reflect that light onto the world.  

Reflect the light; don't just absorb it.  

Shine bright and reflect light on to others who may be in darkness. Show people your light and never dim it for others who may think it is too bright.  

Let the world see you for who you really are!  Do not live in the shadows being casted from from others.  If you are living in someone's shad...
